Surveyor SP220 tv antenna

While I know there are many threads on this subject I think I'm missing some basics because I can't seem to find my answers nor do I have any sort of manual. It appears my Tv antenna is stationary. It doesn't raise or move in any way. Can anyone confirm or tell me if I'm missing something? All I can find is it is a windstar omni directional antenna. Also I only get 3 pbs stations and bbc. I can't get my local nbc or cbs. They are about 60 miles away. Does this sound normal? We don't normally associate tv with camping but since this fancy new camper came with one I want to use it! Sorry for the repetitive thread but I appreciate the help.

It was bad enough when I could spin my batwing around and pick up no channels. Now I don't even get the satisfaction of turning the antenna. Tailgater is looking better to me all the time.

Ours is stationary too. I may be stating the obvious, but have you pushed the power booster button? Our is at the back of the cabinet in our 189.

OTA on Surveyor models.....

We have the same antennae on our Surveyor SP189. It seems good 10 to 20 miles from a tower. Our home is 50 miles from the tower and we pull in 2 local channels as it sits in the driveway.Husband wants our old batwing antennae back. We had that on our old camper. That had a range of 50 to 60 miles and clear reception. This one has a lesser range. OmniDirectional 1500 model
